Susan Sarandon is still with her 30-something ironic mustached boyfriend

I don’t know why I care so much, but I was just wondering in my last story on Susan Sarandon whether she was still with that 30-something ping pong entrepreneur, Jonathan Bricklin. Bricklin was all of 31 in December of ’09 when we first heard rumors that Sarandon was messing around with him. Of course we heard that Sarandon had split with her longterm partner, Tim Robbins, right before the news came out that she was seeing a guy who was 32 years younger than she was. So the timeline was suspect, or maybe Sarandon and Robbins waited months to announce their split.

Anyway fast forward two and a half years and Sarandon and Bricklin are still going seemingly strong. She took him with her to the Czech Republic, where she premiered her film Jeff Who Lives at Home at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival this weekend. She also received a lifetime achievement award. The Daily Mail has details of Susan’s acceptance speech, and dedicated the award to the late great Nora Ephron. Sarandon got choked up when she said “I dedicate this to Nora Ephron. My friend and a wonderful director and writer.” As The Mail points out, Sarandon never starred in Ephron’s films, but they were old “friends who travelled in the same circles in New York and Los Angeles.” It’s hard to believe Ephron has passed. It seemed like just yesterday that she was promoting her memoir.

To lighten the mood, let’s talk about Susan’s dress at the closing ceremony, above. I don’t have a designer ID on it, but this black number with the sheer side panels looks like Stella McCartney. From far away and when the light isn’t hitting it full on it looks potentially flattering on her, as compared to the other hideous sack dress she wore to premiere the film. In the photo above you can see nip, her boobs are hanging low and the dress looks way too revealing to me. In each of these appearances her shoes are really dragging her down. She obviously goes for comfort and it shows. Would it kill her to throw some cute heels in her bag to slip into for the red carpet?

Also, Bricklin’s mustache is ridiculous. Is that what they call an “ironic mustache?” I really hope so, but even so there’s no excuse for it. Maybe it looks better from another angle?

    Tim looks better than this Bricklin guy.

  2. wendy says:

    She is entirely too old to go without a real bra. I mean, they’re nice enough, but she could stand a little more support.

    • Eleonor says:

      I’m with you,even if she is faboulous she is too old for that dress.
      BTW I don’t get why people usually bash Madonna and JLo for their too much young boyfriend, and Susan Sarandon no.

      • lafairy says:

        I totally agree: how some celebrities with younger boyfriend and smaller age gaps with them get bashed and how it comes Susan Sarandon gets accolades with a 32 years younger boyfriend??

        32 is a huuuuuge age difference!

        and also how it comes some very much younger celebrities got dragged through hell for revealing outfits and Susan Sarandon doesn’t with this very shocking dress on any woman of any age with that much boobage!!

        I adore Susan Sarandon I truly adore her as an actress and as human but giving her a pass is quite unfair, 32 years is a huge age difference, that or then it is Ok for the likes of JLO, Sam Taylor-Johnson, etc to do the same without getting trashed!

      • Julie says:

        i guess its just because sarandon is far less often in the news. if we would constantly get pictures of sarandon and her boytoy there also would be comments.

      • me says:

        yeah, she should dress for her age and cover it all up.

        no nips no side panels…no deep plunges.

        too old for all that.

        they say it for Madonna so I’ll say it for this one too. rolling eyes.

      • Starsh says:

        What a bunch of conservative, judgemental people you lot are! Whose business is it if she dates such a young guy? Its not like most relationships last anway, even between people of similar ages, especially in Hollywwod. Sarandon is a free thinker and she must just dress however she chooses! So what if her nipples stick out or her boobs sag? What the heck does age appropriate mean anyway? It’s a societaly imposed term. Go Susan! Flaunt those puppies for all ageing women out there who want to date whoever and dress however they please.

    • Raven says:

      I think she looks great. And she didn’t have to buy them-she was born with them.

  3. Britt says:

    She needs a good fitting bra, her boobs look too saggy and it’s not a good look for her.

  4. GoodCapon says:

    Uhm… that dress. Oh my.

    I love her sunglasses though!

    And this is totally off-topic, but I managed to catch Shawshank Redemption on TV the other day. Tim Robbins is great. Morgan Freeman’s voice is even better.

  5. Lady Lupton says:

    I love her and technically she can do no wrong in my book… but that black dress is not good.

  6. Aussie girl says:

    Umm. Yeah that dress is really not age appropriate on her. It’s nice to see her in something different but to go from one extreme to the next.

  7. Jayna says:

    I love her. She’s put out an amazing body of work and been a great mother and activist. She’s in her sixties and looks great and she still feels youthful and vital. At that age, you realize it’s going fast and you only have one shot at your happiness. If she’s happy with this young guy, I don’t see the problem. She’s not hurting anybody.

  8. Launicaangelina says:

    Yeah, she’s still exudes sexiness but that black dress is all wrong. I hate pointing it out but not only are her boobs in need of a good bra but her arms are showing their age. She can still be sexy in something a little more covered up.

  9. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I love her and I wish she was my friend. However, I could never date a man with an ironic ‘stache.

  10. gee says:

    I don’t really like her. She’s very pretty, but something about her puts me off.

  11. Dorothy#1 says:

    I hate the dress and the shoes!

  12. Mara says:

    Love Susan she is a very nice actress .The black dress is so wrong for her without a bra she is quite old to wear such a dress .

  13. bns says:

    I think she can do better, but maybe he’s a nice guy and I’m just a shallow witch.

  14. fancyamazon says:

    I always wonder how “ironic” anything can possibly be if you are actually wearing it to present to the world on a daily basis.

    As for Susan, I am still sad that she and Tim split.

  15. flourpot says:

    Is her man what people would call a hipster? Yikes. And that dress. Yikes. And those shoes. Yikes.

    Ok, I’m done. :)

  16. Another Nina says:

    I assume Tim must be dating someone, so it’s a revenge. My neighbor dumped his highschool sweetheart wife, and married someone 15 y.o. older than him. His ex-wife is now doing 17y.o. gypsy boy. No kidding. I just don’t believe in the natural extreme pairing

  17. Maritza says:

    Those shoes are hideous! She looks great for her age but she should wear less revealing dresses. As for her boyfriend, I think he is cute even with the mustache.

  18. bea says:

    Susan, Just because you can get it onto your body, doesn’t mean it fits.

    I admire her lust for life.

    And if a himbo makes her happy why should she be judged harsher than any of the grillions of guys with young girlfriends!

  19. lola says:

    She looks great in that black dress. Rock on.

  20. jc126 says:

    Her chest looks GREAT for her age, but no one with breasts that big should go braless, ever, ever. Nor should anyone her age go braless.

    Personally, I think she seems ridiculous dating a guy 30 years younger, especially given her seemingly being a somewhat intellectual, serious person. Dating someone so much younger makes her seem like a female Donald Trump. That guy wouldn’t be dating her if she were Susan Sarandon, the unfamous divorcee in the apartment next door.

  21. RHONYC says:

    ahhh really?!

    okay, ok, we get it…your 100 and still getting laid, that’s awesome. but come on …the tongue & the nipples we need not see. dammit, Janet! lol ;-)

  22. really says:

    As someone who can’t/won’t wear anything higher than a kitten heel, I applaud her comfortable shoes!

  23. Meanchick says:

    If she wants to go bra-less-and it seems she likes to–why not get those bad boys lifted? Also, the shoes make her look like an old lady.

    • crtb says:

      She is an old lady! And this is what happens when older people date people too young for them: They try too hard to look young and hip. She has a great body for her age but that dress is not appropriate for her age. She looks foolish.

  24. Victoria says:

    She’s a movie star and probably has threesomes with him and a young woman. Same thing with Ellen Barkin! These women have been in the business for decades and they know the rules of the game.

  25. Sheila says:

    Wow, oh, wow, Susan. What were you thinking? I saw the sack dress and was surprised. But, I have no words for the black dress. It is truly hideous.

  26. Skinnybetch says:

    Their is a 17 year age difference between me and my guy(he’s older). .30+ years is really pushing it, but she not your average 60 year old. . .she looks great

  27. JudyK says:

    She has no idea how to dress and needs a breast reduction.

  28. TXCinderella says:

    She is starting to look frumpy these days. Her boyfriend looks like a 70′s porn star, especially with that porn-stach he’s sporting. Blech!

  29. Darlene says:

    That dress is doing her no favors. :( She’s too lovely to look that bad.

  30. Dee Cee says:

    She needs the shock or controversy of peekaboo dressing.. not that she is entirely retired from entertaining, but to keep his name embroiled with hers in the publicity game…

  31. supervisor says:

    that guy she is with looks like some nancy boy who followers her around because he is obsessed with that rocky horror show.

  32. Samihami says:

    I agree that she looks awful. And dating someone that much younger than her only makes her look foolish and desperate. And I would still say that if the genders were reversed.

    As for him, he just looks like a dumbass with that stupid mustache.

  33. Bec says:

    I think her tits look great. I know I am in the minority here but I truly think they do. No one else could get away with it but she can. However, I think the sheer side panels on the dress are a big mistake.

  34. lauren says:

    I think Susan feels very confident and happy, doesn’t care what anyone thinks. Her boobs look better than most woman half her age. They are real and spectacular.

  35. Circley says:

    I think she looks great. I’m also a great believer in wearing whatever you want regardless of age. If you’ve got it, flaunt it (just don’t frighten the horses).

    That said, the shoes are terrible. I know plenty of women in their late sixties who wear killer heels for events, and it really makes all the difference in the look. There really should be shoe changing stations on either end of the red carpet ;-)

    I’d also love to see a light-weight chiffon wrap or something on Sarandon’s shoulders/arms (then again this might have something to do with projection on my part, since I love heels but have a hard time wearing them, and hardly ever show bare arms myself).

  36. Judy says:

    I commented about Susan Sarandon and my entire email was posted for everyone to see. Could some one please fix it by taking my last part of email off. Thank you

  37. judy says:

    She is beautiful and sexy no matter what she wears.. I wish I were the one with her! Did you see her in The Hunger? WOW!
